Corsair: Too many versions - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Still, a higher end 700W unit will be plenty for that.... I have to ask though, what are you doing with those peltiers?.. your CPU overclock is rather modest (it's done on cheap, 30$ air coolers), the 670 is a modest overclocker too (as all Keplers are), low power draw, low cooling requirements.... so I'm wondering, if your benching draw is around 550W AC (460-480W DC) on hardware that under typical cooling wouldn't touch the 350W mark... what's the point in having such a hardcore cooling contraption?

Still no need for an 850 watt PSU.

perhaps he wants a headroom for a possible 3rd video card in future, hence why he's looking for a 850W? just a thought wink.gif

Yeah, a TX750 v2 would definitely be enough even if I went sli, but I want a little breathing room.

Why do I have an overkill cooling system? Because it was fun to build, and it works extremely well. Peltiers aren't about efficiency, they are terribly inefficient, but I don't have to worry about getting a new water block for every cpu/board that comes out. Also, as I'm sure you know, the cooler you can keep a processor, the less you have to worry about degradation.

I originally built it to keep an amd 965 nice and chilly at 1.4 volts, which it did quite well. My 2500k requires a little less cooling, but I already had this cooling solution. If I was dirt poor and really needed that extra $4.00 a month savings in electricity, sure I would just use a plain jane CM hyper 212+. As it is, I worked really hard on making my own heat exchanger, and custom mounting solution, so I didn't. Like many people on this forum, modding computers are a fun hobby for me, even if it may require a little extra from a power supply.
